A beautiful church and chapels, and great Polish fare: kielbasa on rye, kapusta (sauerkraut), pierogie, potato pancakes, beer and beverages, arts and crafts, vintners, and rides for the kids all in the shadow of the cross and St. John Paul. A lovely crowd celebrating ethnic pride.
I was taking part of Pilgrimage for the first time this year and it was an amazing experience. Not only you feel closer to God but you feel love & unity of people, priests spiritual guidence is wonderful but most of all you get to appreciate showers of blessing we are given every day of our lives. I would highly recommend it.
Haven't been there in years, but was able to get there recently. The grounds were beautiful and buildings and shrines were breath-taking. Was disappointed that the JPII exhibit is only open on Sundays, but will definitely plan a trip back to see that. Beautiful, prayerful and---Polish!!! Can't wait to return.

I loved it! It's a very peaceful and beautiful place, both on the inside and out! It's located in a gorgeous area also! I attended mass in the Chapel( which was great!)..., I visited the cafeteria and awesome gift shop, and walked the beautiful grounds, including the cemetery. I am going to go back soon, to attend mass in the main Church, and walk the grounds again:) I look forward to my next visit!
This is a place where peace overwhelming you,
Where Mother Of God becomes your Mother,
Where Jesus our Christ Savior becomes a reality
